Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham
under the patronage of Blessed John Henry Newman

In this section:


Welcome to the Parish Church of Our Lady of Lourdes, Sheffield where the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham meets to offer Mass according to the Ordinariate Use. Everyone is welcome and all Catholics in communion with the Holy See are permitted to receive the Sacraments with us. These Masses are listed by referring to Dates for your diary opposite.

While we are certainly untraditional in our structure we are traditional in our forms of worship using the liturgical celebrations proper to the Anglican Tradition which have been approved by the Holy See, so as to maintain the liturgical, spiritual and pastoral traditions of the Anglican Communion within the Catholic Church.

We are in communion with the Universal Church because we believe that having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, through the Church he established, is in accordance with the unity for which our Lord prayed. We discover the healing of Christ’s Church through our communion within the Catholic Church and it is our mission to continually call other Christians to begin that same healing and unity we have started to experience ourselves.



The next Mass at the Catholic Church of Our Lady of Lourdes, Spring Water Avenue, Hackenthorpe, will next take place on Monday 23 April at 11.00am.     We shall continue to go to the Phoenix Inn following Mass at Hackenthorpe. Everyone is welcome to join us.


In addition to the annual Garden Party in the Summer and the Strictly Party at Hackenthorpe in the Autumn  we intend to join our sister group in York for a pilgrimage to the Shrine of Saint Margaret Clitheroe and also, given York's famous railway heritage, a day out on a steam train excursion in August.


Associate membership of the Ordinariate is now available for all Catholics in communion with the Holy See. Please see Father Stafford for further details.

If you are a member, or have been a member of the Church of England and wish to be in communion with the Holy See whilst at the same time maintaining you Anglican heritage please see Father Stafford for details
